Nobody Told Me
Okay, the tornadoes I kind of understand. In WI I grew up with the threat of tornadoes, although along the Mississippi valley, we were fairly protected from them. The increased threat here has worried me since moving to central Illinois, but I've come to terms with that. Mostly because it is winter. But nobody told me about earthquakes before I moved here! A friend emailed me this morning to ask if I had felt the quake that took place in northern Illinois this morning. Luckily that was the first I had heard of it. I've done a little more reading since then and someone mentioned this New Madrid Fault line. I feel duped. Just sayin'.
